Caribbean Airlines is expanding its service to the Eastern Caribbean island of Dominica, making it easier to take a vacation in the nature-filled paradise.
Beginning April 7, the airline will increase its service to Dominica from Trinidad, adding a return service on Fridays.
Right now, Caribbean Airlines runs service from Port of Spain to Dominica on Thursdays, and then onward to Barbados.
The carrier also operates service from Barbados to Dominica on Mondays, onward to Port of Spain.
Travelers can now fly from Trinidad on Thursdays and Fridays, departing Dominica on Mondays, for a total of three weekly flights.
The move also opens up the United States market more for Dominica, with the option for same-day travel to Dominica from New York.
You can leave New York on Friday morning and arrive in Dominica by 6:45 PM; you can then vacation for a week and leave Dominica on Friday, arriving back in New York the following morning.
“The addition of this Friday return flight between Trinidad and Dominica not only increases the options of those resident in Trinidad to visit Dominica but also allow our friends from the TriState area to travel inbound sameday to Dominica via convenient service from JFK through POS and outbound on the redeye to return to JFK to begin their day,” said Colin Piper, Dominica’s Director of Tourism.
